ACCA Issues Call For Comment On Proposed Standard
March 29, 2018

The Air Conditioning Contractors of America Educational Institute (ACCA-EI) Standards Task Team (STT) has issued a call for public comment on the second public review of BSR/ACCA 15 OBD – 201x Standard, On Board Diagnostic Codes for HVACR Equipment. The 60-day public review period begins March 16, 2018 and closes on May 15, 2018.

The On Board Diagnostic Standard details the naming schema for designating fault and performance codes for heating, ventilation, air-conditioning and refrigeration (HVACR) equipment. As defined and used in this proposed Standard, the naming schema standardizes fault and performance codes based on Location (with a Modifier), Mode of Operation, Process, Operating Parameter, and Performance Descriptor.

The schema accommodates operating faults and/or performance characteristics that are commonly identified by today’s equipment diagnostic capabilities, and that may need to be identified as enhanced sensors and controls are applied to future HVACR offerings. Additionally, this Standard provides for the incorporation of proprietary, manufacturer-specific information that individual manufacturers may choose to make available to field practitioners.

A copy of the proposed Standard can be downloaded for free at the ACCA website. Comments on this public review must be submitted by May 15, 2018 (5:00 P.M. EDT) using the ACCA Public Response Form which is available at the ACCA website.

For more information contact Todd Washam, ACCA director of industry and external relations.
